I have an 14 year old daughter and 11 year old boy/girl twins. I started this journey to try to lose the baby weight. I've lost that weight and then some! I hit my goal weight in February 2010 and by the end of April 2010, I had lost 60 pounds! As of May 2011, I have been able to maintain my weight loss. Maintenance was challenging, so much that I didn't do it. Since 2012, I have slowly put the weight back on. Maintenance is so much harder than it sounds! While I've been able to not put all the weight back on, it still fluctuates more than I would like!

I work full time and relish every moment I can spend with my family. It makes it challenging to find time to exercise, but I try to work it into my daily schedule.

Member Since: 11/18/2008

Fitness Minutes: 166,531

My Goals:
*Maintain weight

*Improve health and fitness

*Decrease body fat

My Program:
My program is simple. I am trying to decrease my calorie intake and increase my physical activity.

I use the nutrition tracker all the time and track my strength training and cardio on the fitness tracker. I go to the gym 4-5 days a week, Monday through Friday.

I joined a gym close to work on 4/27/09, so I get my work-outs in during my lunch break.

Personal Information:
I joined Spark in November of 2008, but lost interest (and time) after a week.

At the end of April 2009, I renewed my commitment to lose the extra weight and am trying to commit more to the extras that Spark has to offer. I consider my start date to be April 27, 2009.

    Good morning Lisa! How was your week? Thanks for adding me as a spark friend, and I did the same! Way to go with getting to the gym, especially every lunch hour. That is dedication girl! Woohoo! Happy Mother's Day!

    Thanks for the idea of taking one night a month after the kids are in bed to scrap. Usually I am too tired during the week, but I think that a Saturday night would work out well. I also have a friend that scraps, so maybe I will also try to get together with her every once in a while too. That is a great idea.

    Thanks for posting on my page. Your kids are adorable. Not sure how you find the time to scrap with 3 kids. I find it hard to find the time with my 2 and working. I am planning to do a family book, and one for each kid. I have only started the one for my son who will be 3 in August. I finished my wedding/honeymoon book, after he was born, and that one took me a couple of years. I am hoping that the scrapbooking board helps me to get motivated.

    i would say with twins you have more of a handful than me. your children are adorable. mine are 6, 4 and almost 11 months. the girls love to play mommy so that helps sometimes, but other times is more trouble than help. i wish you well on your weight loss journey amd look forward to hearing from you again.
